Sample text

The input devices include a keyboard, a mouse, and a microphone. Common output devices include a monitor and speakers. Computers can also communicate with the external world through various ports that connect them to networks and to other devices such as handheld music players and digital cameras. The purpose of most of the input devices is to convert information that human beings deal with, such as text, images, and sounds, into information for computational processing. The purpose of most output devices is to convert the results of this processing back to human-usable form.

Now, suppose there are 8 of these groups of 16 lights. We can select any group of lights and examine or change the state of each light within that collection. We have just developed a tiny model of computer memory. This memory has 8 cells, each of which can store 16 bits of binary information. 2. This memory is also sometimes called primary or internal or random access memory (RAM). 2] A model of computer memory The information stored in memory can represent any type of data, such as numbers, text, images, or sound, or the instructions of a program.

The run-time system might execute the program directly on the hardware or run yet another program called an interpreter or virtual machine to execute the program. 3 shows the steps and software used in the coding process. 3 Exercises 1 List two examples of input devices and two examples of output devices. 2 What does the central processing unit (CPU) do? 3 How is information represented in hardware memory? 4 What is the difference between a terminal-based interface and a graphical user interface?
